Buffalo II
 
This is a new thread to discuss the new Buffalo II DAC module.

Cheers!

Well, I finished my Buffalo 32S just a couple months ago. I find it is very good. One minor drawback is that I find it misses a little dynamics and sounds a little soft or laid back.
What are the major differences in sound between this DAC and the previous one? I suppose that it depends a lot on the output stage used, but perhaps you can give some subjective opinion for me to chew on?
Thanks Russ, and keep up the awesome work!

Okay, i've got my BII !
It's going to be fun to see people showing their own made adaptable IVY
(with groupbuy for boards:))

Any news on this Russ ?

"Also Counterpoint II is in the works.
And the very remote possibility of a tube output stage for a little fun".

I'm going to compare Buffalo II with Twisted Pear IVY and a tube based IVY.

I... am going to compare the placids with some Paul Hynes shunts...
Supplying the B-II of course.

When they all arrive...

I think you mean I/V. :)

There is only one IVY. Well three actually ;)

Definitely not the way I have heard it described. :) Perhaps different from what you are used to?

I try not to make subjective descriptions of my own stuff. How is this - It keeps me in my office listening to music hours beyond what I am supposed to. :)

Cheers!

Still working on both. :)

CP II is likely to come first.

Cheers!

"Both" still sounds great ... ;)

OK off topic, but what happened with the "Audio Controller". Is that still going anywhere?
